Didn't think this would be as good as it is. "Direct" in to my Reaper daw it has
Quiet clear and warm sounding clean channel which breaks up nicely when gain is turned up full.
Quiet and warm sounding drive channel, which will give you a very wide range "breaking up to high gain" distortion sounds. Also it is the quietest distortion i have come across so far, buzz is not much even when in high gain mode. This makes for really good recordings. I have used this with Tracks (Suite of compressors,eq's,dessers,reverbs,and limiters) and it sounds great, really good tube sound.Before I bought this I was using ITB guitar rig and amplitude and now I have barely went near them since buying this.The sound is so organic and it helps you play better i feel.
The usb works well but I Have not used this as much just tried out the reamping and it works well some fiddling about with levels is needed to get it good and also suprisingly you can also reamp a vocal track through this and add a lot of warm tube feel to it. Also for those using Reaper putting the IRT through the Js dual amp convolution
modeler you get very good marshall/mesa/ type (with processing) tones bit surprised at how that works so well wow.
Negatives?: very little, it takes about 20 minutes to warm up and sound great but thats normal for tube preamps.
Improvements: a balanced phantom powered combo microphone / guitar combo input like on my focusrite card would be nice.
Great sounding and very versatile preamp.
My guitar is a home made tele type with seymour duncan pickups neck SJBJ-1N humbuckers and st 59 bridge and vintage single coil mid SSL-1 WH. will probably try some other tubes in it as well. it has 2 JJ EC33s(12ax7s) tubes in it.
Have tried 2 ruby tubes 12ax7ac5 hg . Signal even quieter little less distortion but distortion is smoother and tighter better low end. ( will be keeping these).

Guido V., 07.11.2015
Yes now since I like many others here my money does not print itself was so far in the recording of guitar is a serious tube sound, and Laney has always interested me there since it is already the really good IRT studio amp. The IRT studio had irritated me very much but I was now so fast on the fast, so there was only then wait if there was not something from Ratiopharm, and see there Laney skin what new out what my budget also still meets! Well then so first try YouTube and look what there are so s.Examples and shows, and yes what you hear and looks so please order shortly determined.
As always with Thomann everything worked smoothly and easily.
So then he is finally there and a cute little box comes to the appearance, so ruckzuck cabled guitar plugged and try what holds the stuff!
Result "Egg Omi wat is dat beautiful" briefly the tempos out, eyes dry and then my VOX Tonelab St retire!
It is clear that you do not get a Mesa Amp for the money but what you get makes sense and above all it promises not only but also sounds, and the clean and croaked also good as well as high gain in the Hotchanel.
My conclusion, the IRT Pulse is certainly the most favorable hardware solution to get a useful tube sound which one can play really dynamic and the child-friendly to use, the four stars I have only for the reason given because I would have liked the foot switch connection Would be meant to switch between the channels, but unfortunately only for the bypass is thought. Ok otherwise but nothing to complain about. Price performance good.
One should not however be confused by the whole nonsense with USB interface and Reamping that is certainly all pretty for games but in a studio with digital mixer and DAW thus also the desk at the same time an audio interface 32IN and 32Out is, yes one has eh Already bad cards the thing to close because Microsft has not yet managed to operate two Asio drivers parallel and thus USB cable beautifully leave the good piece directly to the desk and everything is great.
